Equality Between Men and Women

             Men have always been considered stronger then female, since the beginning
             of time, women have always been suppressed and have been considered to be
             the weaker and sublime sex as compared to men. In the early 19th century
             after the freedom struggles and feminine rallies, women voices were finally
